Do more than before
A compact inverted research microscope configurable with a wide variety of observation methods
The ECLIPSE Ts2R sets a new standard for the inverted research microscope, providing a wide range of observation methods and applications in a compact body that can easily fit in limited laboratory spaces while maintaining excellent operability.
Easy to work with
Control buttons on the Ts2R microscope are intuitively located for a streamlined workflow. The on/off and Diascopic/Epi-fluorescence switching controls are located on the front panel while buttons pertaining to either Diascopic or Epi-fluorescence control are zoned to the left and right sides of the microscope body, respectively.
New ergonomic stage design for improved workflow

Newly developed mechanical stage option
The Ts2R can be configured with an optional rectangular mechanical stage. This stage provides a long travel stroke, enabling users to observe an entire well plate from end-to-end. You can also set limits to the travel stroke (three-way) to match frequently used samples or vessels. The stage handle is offered in two lengths, long or short, to further accommodate the user's needs.
High S/N Epi-florescence observation in bright rooms
The new Contrast Shield accessory (optional) blocks room light, providing an easy and cost-effective method for achieving high signal-to-noise fluorescence observation in a brightly lit laboratory.
Versatile observation with LED illuminator
The high-intensity LED light source enables you to perform a wide variety of observation methods similar to the full-size, inverted research microscope ECLIPSE Ti2. The Ts2R-FL model, which offers Epi-fluorescence observation, provides four fluorescence channels and 7 different wavelengths to choose from.
New Contrasting Technique, "Emboss Contrast"
Nikon's new contrasting technique is compatible with both plastic and glass culture dishes. Unlike phase contrast or NAMC, Emboss Contrast does not require special objective lenses and therefore has minimal effect on Epi-fluorescence observation. Emboss Contrast allows thick samples such as embryos to be easily observed in pseudo-three-dimensional image with great clarity.

Compact body streamlines your work
Illumination modules including the Epi-fluorescence light source have been seamlessly incorporated into the microscope main body, resulting in a compact and simple design form that's also durable. The compact structure is also vibration-resistant to provide highly stable sample observations.
Three optional camera ports with different light split ratios are available. The image on the right shows a combination with the TS2R-P-CHL Camera Port 50L, designed for ICSI to ensure easy access to the stage.
Easily fits inside laminar flow hoods
High precision and quality
The Ts2R is compatible with Nikon's acclaimed CFI60 objective lenses which provide high numerical apertures and long working distances to deliver stunningly clear images.
High performance and quality optical accessories
Optical accessories achieve the same performance level as Nikon's inverted research microscope ECLIPSE Ti2, providing exceptionally clear, sharp images.
